Yo La Tengo – “Ohm”

By Tom Breihan / December 20, 2012 - 12:51 pm

Next month, Yo La Tengo give us their new album Fade, which is a great album for wistfully staring out windows. We’ve already heard the absolutely killer first single “Before We Run,” and now the band is letting us hear opening track “Ohm,” a lazily unfurling seven-minute domestic fuzz-pop fantasia that’s pretty much exactly what most of us want from a new Yo La Tengo song. “Ohm” soundtracks a pretty time-lapse video of the same tree that appears on the Fade cover. (It’s in Portland’s Overlook Park, if you’re into trainspotting like that.) Watch the video and, more importantly, hear the song below.

Fade is out 1/15 on Matador.
